Your Virginia’s constituents’ state lower house districts may have been changed for 2020 session
The newly elected Virginia House of Delegates is based on the redrawn boundaries for the new Virginia state lower house districts. This redistricting affects 25 districts. An estimated 425,000 voters from Richmond to Virginia Beach have been moved into the new House of Delegates districts.
Notice how, with the examples below, redistricting has changed not only the district number but the party representing it:
4302 Old Courthouse Way, Newport News, VA 23602
Current: District 95 Democrat: Marcia S. (Cia) Price
Starting January 1, 2020: District 94 Republican: David E. Yancey
1016 Greenbrier Pkwy, Chesapeake, VA 23320
Current: District 78 Republican: James A. (Jay) Leftwich
Starting January 1, 2020: District 77 Democrat: C. E. (Cliff) Hayes
On November 18, 2019, as the legislative window opened for the 2020 General Assembly session in Virginia, Democratic lawmakers had filed bills for voting rights, gun control, LGBTQ protections and the ERA. The new House of Delegates convenes on January 8, 2020. So, if you want to make the voice of your membership heard on any of these contentious issues (by leveraging their constituent-representative relationships), you will need to make sure they know what new state lower house district they live in and who in the House of Delegates will be representing them. With January 8th, 2020 coming soon, there is an added sense of urgency to act now.
